INTRODUCTION 



In presenting to the public the second volume of the Texas State Gazetteer and 
Business Directory, the publishers are content to let it rest on its own merits as a work 
of its class, feeling certain that no more appropriate introduction can be offered than 
the assurance that nothing has been omitted on their part to secure accuracy and com- 
pleteness. 

It has been prepared in every part from late and original sources of information 
brought together especially for this work, and embraces all the alterations that modern 
intelligence has approved and experience adopted, and it is hoped that the unremitting 
care bestowed upon the canvass and compilation has brought the work very near that 
perfection at which the publishers aim. The general plan of the work is almost identi- 
cal with that of the former Gazetteer. The earlier pages are devoted to a description of 
the State, lists of State and County Officers, Terms of Court, with names of Judges, etc., 
a Bankers' Directory of Texas, useful selections from the Statutes relating to Commer- 
cial Laws, list of all State Institutions, with location and names of officers, and a regis- 
ter of all the Postoffices in the State, with Money Order Offices, County Seats, etc., 
plainly designated, as well as valuable statistics relating to the State at large. Following 
this will be found a Gazetteer and Directory of every city, town, village and settlement 
in Texas, with descriptive sketches of each place, and lists of all persons engaged in 
business or the professions located there. This is supplemented by a complete classifi d 
Business Directory, printed in the most compact manner known to the art, and compil- 
ing lists of all trades, professions and pursuits, with names and postoffice addresses 
arranged under the various headings called for by their line of business. The facility 
of ready reference which distinguishes this book gives it especial value, and will no 
doubt be properly appreciated . j 

For the occasional errors and discrepancies which may have occurred nn apology is 
not considered necessary, when the many and various sources from which the inforr 
tion is obtained are taken into consideration. 

The publishers take great pleasure in returning thanks to all who have as: .._ 
in the preparation of the work, and to those who have so liberally bestowed their pat. 
age on it, and desire to express the assurance that nothing shall be wanting on their pa 
to make the Texas State Gazetteer and Business Direetoiyth«%5nly standard publication 
of its kind, in which capacity it is hoped it may be the means of protecting the business 
citizens of the State from the various swindling schemes which under the name of 
County and State Directories are commonly used to fleece the unwary subscriber. 

The third volume of the work will in due course appear, and the publishers desire 
to bespeak for it the same kind patronage and support which have so liberally been 
bestowed upon the present issue. i

EARLY SETTLEMENT. 

Although Texas is called a new State, it will in 1885 be two centuries old. 

On the shores of Natagorda Bay, February 18th, 16S5, landed a band of white men. 
About one year later, on March 20th, 1686, the first organized effort was made to estab- 
lish a colony; a Dumber of monks from the old and moss-grown monasteries of Spain 
established a mission on the banks of Lavaca river. These missions, which were of a 
semi-military character, were soon established from the mouth of the Rio Grande into what 
is now California. To these hardy, zealous monks from Catholic Spain, then, belongs the 
honor of making the initial eiforts towards the civilization and settlement of the Lone 
Star State of to-day. ^ <q ^ q^^ 

LOCATION AND EXTENT. -*- *=* *** *J> KJ if O 

This great State — great in area, great in natural advantages, great in present pros- 
perity, greater in future prospects, grand in its early history, its noble defense against 
the Mexicans when it was an independent Republic, greatest in much that is noble of 
any State in the American Union — is comprised within the twenty -sixth and thirty- 
eighth degress of latitude, and between the seventeenth and twenty-eighth degrees of 
longitude west from Washington. The vastness of this State will be better understood 
by the statement that it contains 27-4,366 square miles of territory, which is subdivided 
into two hundred and twenty-six counties, fifty-six of which number are unorganized. 
The area of Texas is five times greater than that of Illinois; seven' times that of Indiana, 
and equals in extent Iowa, Wisconsin, Missouri, Ohio, Vermont, and New Harnshire, 
combined, with the Granite State of Massachusetts thrown in. The number of acres in 
the State is more than 175,594,000. Eight hundred miles from east to west, and 700 
miles from north to south is another measurement of the Imperial State of Texas. 

ADMITTED TO THE UNION. 

The Province of Texas — the" Lone Star Republic," so called because of her banner 
bearing but a single star — after enjoying for about a decade of years a freedom won 
upon many a bloody field, became the State of Texas in 1848, by being admitted to the 
Union. 

POPULATION AND TAXABLE PROPERTY. 

In 1850 the population of the State was ,212,000, and the assessed value of taxable 
property, not including slave property, was §33,832,115. Ten years later (1800) the 
population had increased to 604,215, and the assessed value of all property, slaves only 
excepted, was $16-4,338,138. During the uext ten years the civil war occurred, but not- 
withstanding this, the population in 1870 was found, to have increased to 818,579, while 
the assessor's books showed the value of all property liable to taxation to be $170,473,778. 
The United States census of 1880 gave the State a population of 1,591,749, and the 
assessed value of the property for the same year was $318,970,736. In 1881 the value of 
the taxable property was $357,000,000. The number of live stock for this year (1881) 
was: horses and mules, 952,491; cattle, 4,037,837; sheep, 3,262,104; goats, 329,808; hogs, 
1,854,239.

TIMBER AND FOREST. 

It is authoritatively stated that between Texarkana and Baird, on the T. & 
P. Ry, and between the first named place and Whitesboro, there is growing to-day 
enough timber of a merchantable character to supply not only Texas, but the 
State of Kansas and the entire prairie country for years to come. Beyond the 
Pecos river, in the far west, are great forests of cedar and pine of immense growth. 
"When this portion of the State shall have been settled, these forests will prove of the 
utmost value. Bordering Texas on the east are the vast forests of Louisiana, as yet 
almost unknown to the woodman's axe. It has been officially said that there are sixteen 
varieties of oak in the State, of which the red or Spanish oak often reaches a height of 
100 feet and a circumference of twenty feet at the base. The very abundant whife oak 
does not grow quite so tall, but often exceeds it in diameter. It grows all over North- 
eastern Texas. Of other trees there are three species of elm, three of maple, live of 
hickory — including the pecan, two of mulberry, two of persimmon, one of sycamore, 
three of magnolia, two of hackberry, several' kinds of willow, four of pine, two of 
cypress, several cedars, etc. Texas has the finest pineries in the world. The long leaf 
pine and the loblolly are the most common varieties. Some of these trees grow as tall 
as 180 feet, and have a diameter of 2 — 3 feet. Pitch pine is abundant in some of the 
counties of Eastern Texas. Along the streams of Northern Texas, the cypress grows 
abundantly. "West of the Colorado River, the mountain or highland species of this 
tree fringes most of the streams. Many specimens of the common cypress measure 
25 — 30 feet in girth and make valuable lumber. Cedar grows to enormous sizes in West- 
ern Texas, and many red cedara have a length of 120 feet and a thickness of 3—4 feet. 
Live oak grows taller in Texas than elsewhere, often having a straight stem forty feet 
before a limb is reached. Pecan and hickory trees attain great size and in company 
with the various species of oak make an abundant mast. Ash of several varieties, Bois 
d'Arc, mulberry, hackberry and cotton wood are found in quantity along the river banks. 
The prevailing timbers are post oak, black jack, Spanish oak, cedar and live oak in the 
uplands ; skin oak in sandy patches ; mesquite on level prairies, and hickory, ash, 
sycamore, walnut, hackberry, cottonwood, etc., along the streams. The apparently 
bare prairies in the counties further west, generally have an abundant suppl} r of fuel 
under ground. In prairies crossed by running streams, there is plenty of timber that 
will go a good way towards house building.

RESOURCES. 

The shipments over the Texas & Pacific, International and Great Northern, Missouri, 
Kansas & Texas, and the Trinity and Sabine railways, not including the vast traffic over 
the St. L., Iron Mountain & Southern railway, during the past current year, show 
551,706,462 pounds of lumber, 55,296,983 pounds of grain, 9,843,503 pounds of wool, 
and cotton amounting to 620,883 bales. When the vast products of the whole State are 
aggregated the showing reaches more nearly the grand territorial proportions of the 
State. The following tabular statement is as nearly correct as any census report ever 
made: 

Values. 

Cotton, 1,513,310 bales :$ 75,665,500 

Wool, 22,780,230 pounds 4,100,441 

Hides, 13,312,746 pounds 1,464,402 

Cattle, 703,642 head (including the drive) 16,346,980 

Horses, 19,224 head 480,600 

Lumber and shingles 9,226,413 

Grain and hay 5,674,815 

Cotton seed, cotton seed cake and oil 3,428,516 

Miscellaneous products 2,875,419 

Sugar and molasses 642,210 

Total $119,906,296 

These facts clearly exhibit the capabilities and resources of Texas. These agricultural 
and industrial products are but the initial efforts of a comparatively sparse population, 
but when the sources of industry rise to their just and inviting proportions, the figures 
given, large as they are, will be many times doubled.

MINERAL SPRINGS—WINTER RESORTS. 

_ Among the inviting features of the State are the numerous mineral springs, with 
their medicinal and health giving qualities. The better known of these springs are those 
at Lampasas, 00 miles northeast of Austin; the Palo Pinto springs, in Palo Pinto county, 
seven miles from Millsap, on the Texas & Pacific railway; Sour'Lake, on the Texas & 
New Orleans railway, 60 miles east from Houston; Burdett's Sour Well, near Luling, on 
the G., H. & S. A. railway, in Southwestern Texas; Wootan Mineral Wells, in Robert- 
son county, three miles from Bremond, on the II. & T. C. railway; and the Sutherland 
springs, 25 miles east of San Antonio. To all of these may be added Caldwell's mineral 
springs, in the county of Caldwell, and near Luling; the white sulphur waters of Grimes 
county, known as Helium's springs, and situated about twenty miles from Bryan, on 
the Houston & Texas Central railway; and the Piedmont springs, on the line of the 
same road, near Navasota. Others might be referred to, and a much more elaborate 
description of them given, together with the refreshing heallhfulness of the climate, 
charming scenery, and all that adds to the comfort and attractiveness of their surround- 
ings. They are the inviting winter resorts of the country, and thousands from the 
rugged climate of the North would largely add to their health and years if they would 
but visit them. 

EDUCATIONAL. 

There arc now maintained in the State 5,048 public schools, 3,900 of which are for 
the white, and 1,14.8 for the colored population. The number of children enrolled in 
school and receiving free tuition is 142,325, of which number 104,591 are white, and 
37,734 colored. The number of children of scholastic age unable to read is 10,598, the 
number of white children coming under this head being 5,62.2; the colored, 4,976. The 
total scholastic population is 274/166, 

MINERALS. 

Coal. — The carboniferous rocks extend over a large area in the northwestern part 
of the State. Those are the true coal-bearing rocks of other States and countries. Good 
coal for the use of the blacksmiths of the country is found in beds at and near the sur- 
face. The coal formation of Texas extends from the Red river in Clay and Wichita 
counties through Archer, Young, Jack, Throckmorton, Jones, Haskell, Shack

Stephens, Callahan, Eastland, Coleman, Brown, Concho, McCulloch, San Saba, Mason, 
Llano and Burnet counties. The five last named counties are also largely composed of 
rocks older than the carboniferous. The above is given as the result of explorations 
made in the geological survey of the State. 

Iron. — In Llano county, about fourteen miles northwest of the town of Llano, is a large 
bed of magnetite or magnetic oxide of iron, rising to the height of about two hundred 
feet above the bed of Jackson creek which runs at its base. Large veins of the ore in 
granite rocks extend across the bed of the creek into the hills beyond. The iron hill is 
covered with large blocks of solid iron ore, many of several tons weight, enough being 
loose to supply a large manufactory of iron for many years, for those huge loose masses 
almost cover many acres. Indeed a large portion of the hill appears to be a mass of 
solid iron. Burnett, Llano and Mason counties abound in iron ores, both magnetites and 
hematites — ores enough to make iron to supply the wants of the country for ages. The 
tertiary rocks of Eastern Texas abound largely in ores both hematites and limonites. 
Cherokee county alone has iron enough in its hills and valleys to make sufficient iron 
for the country for many years. Such ores also abound in Robertson county ; also near 
Jefferson, where they have lately been smelted to a considerable extent. These ores are 
peculiarly rich, yielding, on an average, 50 per cent of metallic iron. 

Copper. —Copper ores are found in veins in the granite and rnetamorphic rocks of 
Mason and Llano counties. Rich coppar ores scattered over the surface have been found 
to a large extent in Archer and some of its adjacent counties, extending westward into 
Haskill county. Copper ores in large fissure veins abound in the Chinati mountains 
in Presidio county. 

• Marble — The lower silurian rocks of Burnet, Llano and San Saba counties contain 
very good marbles of various shades of color, white, black and clouded. Granites suit- 
able for building and other purposes, also abound in these counties. The cretaceous 
rocks which extend over a large portion of the western and northwestern sections of the 
State, being mostly limestones, have large beds of rocks suitable for building purposes, 
and these have been extensively used in building in Austin and other cities and towns of 
the State. 

Gypsum — On the headwaters of the Red river and its tributaries is one of the largest 
gypsum, formations known, extending for hundreds of miles and affording inexhaustible 
supplies. Gypsum in all its forms is here — alabaster, silenite, etc. 

Salt— At the Grand Saline in Van Zandt county, near the Southern Pacinc railroad, 
about one hundred miles east of Dallas, salt is extensively made from salt springs, where 
there is an unlimited supply of water, one gallon of which gives one pound and one- 
third of a pound of salt. Salt wells are also at Graham, in the southern part of Young 
county. Salt is also procured in shallow lagoons of the Gulf of Mexico, between Corpus 
Christi and Brownsville, as well as in Western Texas, at Horse Head crossing, on the 
Pecos, and in large beds in El Paso county, southwesterly of El Paso. 

CONDENSED FACTS. 

It is estimated that at the opening of 1884 Texas had of improved land, including 
cut pasture fences, 20,000,000 acres; under cultivation, 7,000,000. Three million 
(3,000,000) acres of corn were planted in 1882. The acreage of cotton for the same year 
was 2,810,113. 400,000 acres of wheat in 18S2 produced 4,173,700 bushels. The cotton 
crop for 1S82 was 608,120,000 pounds. 375,000 acres were sewn with oats in 1882; pro- 
duct, 9,239,600 bushels. Lampasas Mineral Springs have au estimated aggregate flow of 
360 barrels every minute. Texas is now called the Imperial State. The native Texans 
of the State number over 900,000. In 1882 the corn crop was 63. 116,300 bushels. In 
the increase, in population between 1870 and 1880, Texas leads all the states of the Union. 
Texas wheat crop per acre in 1882, exceeded in value that of any other State. In tim- 
ber lands Texas has more than double that of any other Southern State. The number 
of church members in the Slate is 350,132.

Slate Perpetual Calendar, pocket for papers, and a Farmers 1 Account Book, which is in book-keeping 
what the Calculator is jn arithmetic. This pari, when written up, can be taken out, and a new one put 
in, for 15 cents. It is unquestionably one of the most useful, convenient and practical pocket manuals 
ever offered to the public, and is worth its weight in gold to Farmers, Mechanics and Tradesmen.

may make assignments for benefit of such creditors only as will accept their pro rata in 
discharge of all liability. Any creditor having reason to believe such debtor has con- 
cealed his property, may have him summoned before District or County Judge, and 
examined under oath, etc. Any attempted preference of one or more creditors shall be 
deemed fraudulent and without effect. Concealment by debtor of his property from 
assignee, or transfer of property previous to and in contemplation of assignment, with 
intent to defraud creditors, is made a felony. 

Judgment Lien. — In Federal, District and County Court, judgment is a lien on 
debtors' real estate iu any county where an abstract of judgment shall be filed and

tiff fails to have execution issued within twelve months after judgment. 

Limitation to Suits. — Written contracts, four years; accounts, other than open 
accounts between merchant and merchant, their factors and agents, two years. Mort- 
gage lien barred with the debt, but new promise which revives debt, and which must be

Married Women can not bind themselves, nor their separate estate, by making, 
drawing, acceptiug, or indorsing negotiable instruments. Her separate estate is not 
liable for husband's debts; nor for her own contracts, except for expenses incurred for its

erty. That acquired after marriage, except as above, or by sale or exchange of separ- 
ate property, is community property. j

within sixty days. Protest : Such liability may also be fixed by protest, according to

tract sued on by its terms is to be performed, or in county of his residence, at option of

The Michigan Central new Bridge at Niagara. 

Being the only railroad out of Chicago that runs through trains to New York and Boston 
via Niagara Falls, and offering to all classes of travelers vastly superior inducements to 
an)' other eastern line. Its trains are models in every way; the Daj T Coaches run on the 
line are unquestionably better than any of its competitors; the Smoking Cars are new, 
and built on the latest and most approved pattern, and are not used for second-class 
passengers; Wagner's newest and most improved Drawing Room Cars are attached to 
Day trains, and new lines of Wagner Sleeping Cars, built especially to accommodate the 
patrons of this line, are run on the Fast Express, and Atlantic and Night Expresses. 

On the Fast Express and Atlantic. Express, the Famous Dining Cars of the Michigan 
Central Road are run from Chicago to Niagara Falls, serving all meals en route at the 
nominal price of 75 cents each. The meals on these cars are equal to those served in 
any of the first-class hotels of the country, and as they are owned by the Company, and 
run for the accommodation of our patrons (the expenses of the cars exceeding greatly 
the receipts), they may be assured of the best service at all times. This last point (the 
Dining Cars) is a great consideration to ladies and families, and saves them from the 
annoyance of getting out at wayside stations and devouring meals without regard to 
health or comfort, and in imminent danger. of missing the train. The Michigan Central 
Railroad is the only line to Niagara Falls or Buffalo that runs Dining Cars from 
Chicago. 

It is both the shortest route and the only one under a single management from Chicago 
to Niagara Falls and Buffalo, and from these facts quick time and close connection at 
all junction points are assured. Since the completion of its magnificent new steel bridge 
at Niagara early in December, all Michigan Central trains are run solid via the Falls, 
stopping long enough to give passengers the finest views without additional detention or 
expense.

Picturesque Mackinac Island. 



This Great Historic Summer Resort and Sanitarium is reached by the 
Detroit &. Cleveland Steam Navigation Company 

by their pleasant route through the lakes, with a splendid line of 
palatial side-wheel iron steamers, the largest, swiftest and most luxu- 
rious of any on fresh water. Steamers City of Mackinac and City of 
Cleveland leave Detroit every Wednesday and Friday morning at 10 
o'clock, and Monday and Saturday nights at 22 o'clock, standard time. 

A round trip to Mackinac occupies two and three quarters days 
from Detroit, or four and a half days from Cleveland. The steamers 
stop at Mackinac Island both going and returning, which gives from 
four to six hours to view the wonders and curiosities, or thirty-six hours 
may be had by waiting for the next following steamer. As round trip 
tickets are good to return by either steamer at anytime, your stay can 
be prolonged as desired. 



Mackinac 'sland, as seen from the decks of Steamers. 

A summer trip is planned for a change from the excitement of 
business and monotony of household cares to a quiet return to Nature, 
for rest and recreation. 

A trip by water affords the relief sought, as no other medium will, 
with plenty of fresh air and ample time for a good view of the varied 
scenery, the most attractive to be found. The cost is the least Dossible 
per day, for an equal number of days' recreation. 

Between Cleveland and Detroit the company's steamers, City of 
Detroit and Northwest, leave every evening (except Sunday) at 20.30 
o'clock from Cleveland, and 22 o'clock from Detroit, arriving at either 
city the following morning at 5.30 o'clock, in time for all early trains. 

Foiders, showing the bird's eye view of Mackinac Island and the 
Lake Route sent free, or enclose 25 cents for illustrated book, entitled, 
"A Lake Tour to Picturesque Mackinac."

west of Houston, 80 northeast of San An- 
tonio, CO southeast of Burnet, 860 south- 
west of St. Louis, Mo., 1,151 southwest of 
Chicago, 111., and 2,131 southwest of New 
York. Excellent transportational facili- 
ties are afforded by the following lines of 
railroad: The I. div. M. P. Ry, which 
runs from Laredo to Texarkana, and 
makes connection with all the principal 
Texas roads; the W. div. IL & T. C. Ry, 
from Austin to Houston, and the A. & 
N. W. Ry, running in a northwesterly 
direction as far as Burnet. The Colorado 
river furnishes an abundant supply of pure 
water. The educational and religious 
facilities of Austin are the pride and boast 
of its citizens, and consist of the Univer- 
sity of Texas, endowed with two millions 
of acres of land and $57,000, Texas Insti- 
tute for the Blind, Texas Institute for the 
Deaf and Dumb, St. Mary's Academy for 
girls, St. Mary's School for boys, Austin 
public schools, graded; Texas German and 
English Academy for boys, Alta Vista In- 
stitute for young ladies, Hood Seminary, 
Stuart Female Seminary, Tillotson Col- 
legiate and Normal Institute (colored), and 
the Capital Business College. The 
churches are 17 in number, 13 white and 4 
colored, and represent the following de- 
nominations: Episcopal, Methodist, Pres- 
byterian, Baptist, Catholic, Swedish. 
Christian and Hebrew. The Capitol build- 
ing, now being erected at a cost of $3,000,- 
000, will be one of the finest structures 
of its kind in the world, and is superbly 
situated on a system of terraced hills rising 
northward from the Colorado river and 
ending in a crown of cedars. The city 
now contains five banks, doing business 
on an aggregate capital of $750,000, 3' 
flouring mills, 2 foundries, 4 planing mills, 
2 ice factories, marble works, tanneries, 
saddle tree and saddle and harness facto- 
ries, gas works, water works, electric light 
works, a cotton compress, and many other 
minor industries too numerous to men- 
tion, besides the usual complement of pro- 
fessional men, special and general stores, 
blacksmith shops, etc., and all the other 
attributes of a first-class city. The asy- 
lum for the insane, located here, has G00 
patients. The press is represented by the 
following papers: The Statesman (daily 
and weekly, Democratic), the Dispatch 
(evening. Independent), Texas Sifting*. 

Wochenblatt Tixian, Texas Baptist Ileraid, 
American Sketch Book, Homeopathic Pellet, 

Texas Farm and lianch, and Every Satur- 



day. The fire department consists of two 
Siisby steamers and 3 hook and ladder 
companies. The streets are wide and well 
paved, and are studded with handsome 
business blocks and palatial private resi- 
dences, making Austin one of the most 
beautiful cities on this continent. The 
city government consists of a mayor, a re- 
corder, a board of aldermen, and an effi- 
cient police department. The exports, 
which are very extensive, comprise cotton, 
wool, hides, pelts and grain. Exp., Texas 
and Pacific. Tel., W. U. and Telephone

ing to the census of 1880, was 10,900, but 
since that time the city has grown so rap- 
idly that it now contains over 17,000 in- 
habitants. Mail, daily. J. C. DeGress.

lEGIITE and NORMAL INS 

For the Colored Youth of Texas. 

Situation. — Tillotson Institute is situated at Austin, just outside the city, upon 
a beautiful eminence commanding a magnificent view of the valley of the Colorado, 
with its encircling hills and mountains. 

The E£uil<iui£ — As it appears on the next page. We have a tine brick struc- 
ture with stone trimmings, five stories high, containing airy and commodious school 
and recitation rooms, well provided with Blackboards, Maps, Desks, and everything 
needed in this line. It is without question 

Superior to anything of the kind in the State. 

We have also accommodations for some ninety (90) boarders. To this department 
of our work, we invite the special attention of those at a distance. 

Grammar Department. — The course of study in this department is 
designed especially to meet, the wants of those who desire to secure a very thorough 
- ' English education, including Complete Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, History- 
Ancient and Modern, and the Natural Sciences. It is doubtful if any course 
has ever been devised better titled to prepare for teaching, or for engaging in the 
practical work of life than this. A diploma is given to those graduating from 
this department. 

The College Preparatory Department. — This, as its name implies, 
is designed to prepare for the College course. No effort is spared to make it 
preparatory for entering this or any college in the country. 

College Department. — The College Course extends through four years. It 
embraces the studies pursued in all the higher institutions of learning. The aim 
is to make this for the colored people what Yale is to the young men of New 
England. While at present there is no Theological Department, yet ample oppor- 
tunity is provided for those desiring to pursue such studies. Students in Greek — 
both Classic and New Testament — now in attendance. There are also provisions for 
those desiring to study Law. So in every Department but Medicine, we are pre- 
pared to receive students, and at very low terms, considering the cost of living in 
Texas, and the quality of the work done. 

Iff tisie. —Facilities for instruction in both Vocal aud Instrumental are ample. 

EXPENSES. 

Our terms for Day Pupils are per month: 

Grammar Department , $ 2 00 

Normal and Collegiate 2 50 

Boarding Department, including Tuition, furnished Room, Lights and Wash- 
ing, per month 12 00 

CALENDAR. 

Fall Term begins first Monday in October, 1884. Vacation days, Christmas and 

New Year. 
Winter Term begins January 2d, 1885. Vacation, last week in March. 
Spring Term begins first Monday in April. 
Anniversary Exercises each year in June.

phcre, both summer and winter, is one of 
the most desirable residence cities in the 
Union. The first settlement was made 
here about the year 1840, by John Neely 
Bryan on the exact tract of land on which 
the city is now situated. Three years later 
emigrants from Kentucky, Tennessee, 
Missouri and Illinois came here to search 
for homes and found a river that knew not 
the sight of men save the red sons of the 
forest, who for long years had wandered 
by its margin, fished in its depths and 
laved in its limpid waters. In this mag- 
nificent wilderness of forest and prairie 
these adventurous pioneers set to work to 



machine shops, agricultural implement 
works, an ice factory, planing mills and 
many more too numerous to mention, be- 
sides a very thorough representation of 
the learned professions, the minor trades 
and all other branches of commerce. 
Churches of the following denominations 
supplj-- the religious needs of the city: 2 
Episcopal, 2 Catholic, 3 Methodist Episco- 
pal, 2 Presbyterian, 2 Christian, 2 Con- 
gregational, a Hebrew and 3 German, 
and there are in addition to these 8 
churches for the colored people. The 
public school system of Dallas is a source 
of pride to its citizens, each ward having

make houses for themselves and to lay the a separate building and an efficient staff of 



foundations of fortune. How thoroughly 
they succeeded and to what an extent 
their anticipations have been fulfilled, is 
evidenced by the present prosperous con- 
dition of this "Emporium of Northern 
Texas." From 1816 up to 1860 its progress 
was dismally slow. In 1860 a disastrous 
fire laid waste the greater part of the city, 
and for the next few years during the civil 
war,the abomination of desolation brooded 
over the city. The general improvement 
in business consequent on the conclusion 
of the war, once more gave the city an up- 
ward boom, and the advent of the Houston 
and Texas Central Railway in 1872, 
marked the dawning of an era of prosperity 
and almost like magic, Dallas sprung from 
a village to a city of almost Metropol- 
itan proportions; her population in less 
than a year increasing from 1.500 to 
over 7,000. Five railway corporations 
have already reached here, and have estab- 
lished substantial freight and passenger 
depots; these roads are, the M. P. Rv (E. 
div. & D. ex.), the H. & T. C. Ry, the 
D. ex. of the G., C. & S. F. Ry, and the 
T. T. R. R., all these lines centering here, 
and with their connections radiating to all 
points of the United States, afford Dallas 
means^ of transportation unsurpassed by 
any city in the State, with the exception, 
perhaps, of Houston. The local govern- 
ment is vested in a mayor and board of 
aldermen. A board of trade is sustained 
by some of the best representative men of 
the city, and an enterprising company have 
now over 40 miles of telephone in opera- 
tion. The city contains 3 incorporated 
and 3 private banks, 2 opera houses, 2 large 
flouring mills, 3 broom factories, cotton, 
compresses and grain elevators, a factory 
for the production of essences, syrups, etc., 
large marble works, the Howard Oil Com- 
pany, employing 150 men, foundries and 








teachers. Besides the public schools, 8 
colleges and private select schools are 
maintained and the African population 
own 6 school buildings (3 common and 3 
private). The various secret and benevo- 
lent societies have lodges here, the city is

a i. 



THE DALLAS MERCURY 

Contains a larger amount of brief and concise news— Local, State, Domestic and Foreign— than any 
paper in the State, keeping its readers thoroughly posted on the current events of the day. Through 
its persistent warfare against cliques and rings, and through its instrumentality in breaking up the 
notorious gambling hells of Dallas.it has met with unparalleled success, and enters its third volume 
with the reputation of being emphatically the " People's Paper 1 ' and, thereby, has become the best 
advertising medium in North Texas. It is a clean family paper, having departments devoted to 
Romance and Adventure, Education. Agriculture, Household Economy and a Youths' Portfolio. Terms 
by Mail, $1.50 per j-ear; 85 cents for six, and 50 cents for three months. Sample copies sent free.

EL PASO. Or "The Pass," is a beau- 
tiful city separated from Mexico by the 
Rio Grande river, in the western portion of 
county of the same name, of ■which it has 
recently been made the county seat, 712 
miles northwest of Austin. Soon after 
the conquest of Mexico, Spaniards of all 
classes scattered through the country in 
search of precious metals, and a party 
composed of explorers, traders, soldiers 
and priests coming down from the Sierra 
Madras, following the range of mountains 
through which the Rio Bravo Del Norte 
runs, they came to the amphitheatre be- 
tween the mountains and the river, where 
they found the native Indians living in 
primitive innocence, raising corn and 
pumpkins, and basking in the sunshine 
of almost perpetual spring. The priests 
ever on the lookout for the interests of 
Mother Church, decided that this was the 
very place to establish a mission, which 
they did, calling it the "Mission of our 
Lady of Guadalupe," and the same year 
(1620) they built a church, this was the 
year in which the Pilgrims landed on Ply- 
mouth Rock. This was all confined to the 
west side of the river, and the town was 
and is known as Paso Del Norte; the east 
side was a dreary waste until 1827, when 
Den J. M. Ponce Deleon received a grant 
of 2 cabillions (about 160 acres), of land, 
and this was cultivated until the time of 
the Mexican war when it became the cen- 
tre of military operations for a few regi- 
ments of infantry and cavalry. Several of 
the officers and men were married here, 
and with traders and camp followers re- 
mained after the war waiting for the rail- 
road. They waited until after the pauie of 
1873 when all railroad expectations ceased, 
then they left for new and old Mexico and 
other parts ol Texas until only n very few 
Americans were left. With 1880 and the 
advent of several lines of railroad, a new 
era of prosperity dawned upon El Paso, 
and it quickly grew from a deserted town 
into a flourishing city. The following 
lines of railroad now have depots at this 
point: The G., K & 8. A, the R. G. div. 
of the M. P., the Mexican Central, the 
Southern Pacific and the Atchison, To- 
peka & Sauta Fe; these lines with their 
connections give El Paso almost unsur- 
passed transportational facilities for a town 



of its size. It now contains 5 "churches, a 
public school, a library, 2 large opera 
houses, gas and water works, an efficient 
fire department, a telephone exchange, 2 
street railways, one of which runs into 
Mexico and is the only international street 
railway in the world, 2 national banks, a 
custom house, grist mills and cotton gins, 
a smelter, a number of stores, and 3 news 
papers, the Herald and Lone Star both 
weekly, and the El Paso Times, daily, the 
latter receiving associated press despatches. 
The situation is delightful, the thorough- 
fares are wide and beautiful and are 
studded with handsome private residences 
and business blocks. Fruits of all kinds, 
but especially grapes grow well here, and 
the excellence of El Paso wine is too well 
known to need comment. The surround- 
ing mountains abound in minerals, and 
from its advantageous position as the gate- 
way of Mexico, it is destined to become 
the most important citv of the southwest.

limits, which furnish the best water for all 
purposes. The city contains a court 
house, erected at a cost of $50,000, ahand-
